Amusement parks are somewhere where the whole family can go for some wholesome fun but the people at this park in India, a day of fun turned into tragedy on Sunday (14th July). A popular pendulum-style ride at an amusement park in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad fell apart in mid-air, killing two people and injuring 29 others.

According to Time.com, the city’s mayor said that they are currently carrying out a criminal investigation into the incident. Six people including the managing director of the company that runs the park have been charged with culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

A video of the incident went viral on social media, showing the moment that the “Discovery” circular pendulum ride at Kankaria Amusement Park broke apart and screams of joy turned into terror. The ride, which was in the middle of one of its rotations, seems to be working fine until suddenly, the main pendulum arm carrying the passengers broke and crashed to the ground, amidst cries of horror.
